Fall Style Inspiration

Source: Greg Vaughn

Fall is just around the corner, and even though for us here in the southern states it comes a little later, I am excited for the cooler weather ahead.  We have been enjoying the beach and all the beauty that comes with it, but there is something about autumn that brings excitement.   Mostly it makes me miss Seattle, it was my favorite season when we lived there.  All the colorful leaves and fresh air.  I need to plan a trip soon, it has been too long.

Here are some outfit inspirations and items I picked up recently:

A plaid shirt, skinny jeans, and a bright heel equals effortless look.

Picked up one in cream and black.  Such a cozy statement piece!

My Valentine gift from hubs, absolutely love these!

Love an oversized  poncho, perfect for layering.

Love this outfit, and her fringe bag is everything! Similar here

Father's Day Gift Guide

Here is a quick Father's Day Gift Guide.  Whether it is for your father or husband, make sure to buy something he will enjoy.  You know him best!  And if in doubt choose an experience, like tickets to a game or favorite band, or a massage.  That will definitely earn extra brownie points!

One of my friend's birthday is on Father's Day and she is really into jewelry and has multiple piercings. One of my favorite sites for that kind of thing is I am going to pick out a few cartilage earrings for her. Check them out if you are on the look out for a place that carries all sorts of jewelry all in one place.  Maybe your man or father loves jewelry too, perfect place to pick out a few goodies for him.

For the Love of Boots

I have this obsession with boots.  It started when I saw my first pair at Aldo when I was 16. Back then Aldo was a hip new place to buy shoes.  The quality was superb and many of the shoes were made in Brazil or Italy.  Something drew me to them.  They were black, pointed toe, and made of butter soft leather!  The lining was pink and they were made in Italy.  I tried them on, and I was sold, I needed to own them!  Have you ever had that moment?  It's magical right?! The way they made me feel, like I can do anything.  Sounds cliche, I know!  I saved for a couple months just to get them.  Back then I worked as a grocery store bagger making $5.75 an hour.  Those were the days!  and I remember the day I finally did, it was heaven!  The anticipation and all the hard work paid off.    I wore does boots to death.  To Seattle, to NYC, and many trips in between.  My shoe cobbler saw me many times over the next couple years with the same boots.  And I still have them!  Since then I have added more boots, but those will always be special!  My mom recently told me she also loved wearing boots in her younger years, hmm..I wonder if it's genetic!?  I am taking care of all mine and definitely going to pass them down to my daughters!

Here are a few of my picks:
